The property is set in enchanting cottage style gardens, laid to lawn with flowers, shrubs and trees and there is a vegetable area with two greenhouses and polytunnels. There is a substantial range of traditional buildings with part cob and part stone barn with exposed 'A' frame trusses and adjoining log store and attached to this is an 'L' shaped shippon.
